Reading Picture Books With Children: How to Shake Up Storytime and Get Kids Talking About What We See

Join Megan Dowd Lambert to discuss The Whole Book Approach, an interactive way to get children talking about picture books and what they hear and see during storytime. Developed by Megan while at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, this tried and tested method focuses on the picture book as a visual art form and invites kids to become active participants during shared reading. Join Megan and author/illustrator David Hyde Costello to share anecdotes, learn tips and gain access to road-tested techniques to get kids thinking with their ears and their eyes.
